Interview at Wag the Fox

Gef Fox interviewed me about In the Shadow of the Axe over at Wag the Fox. Here’s a snippet (you can click through to read the whole interview):

With IN THE SHADOW OF THE AXE, the small German mountain village of Helmburg is isolated and agrarian and lives in the shadow, at times literally, of its difficult and tragic past. Its isolation has left it steeped in tradition and superstition at a time when the rest of Europe is shedding the cloak of irrationality and progressing toward scientific reason, which makes it the perfect setting for a story that’s really about the clash between old and new generations, between the fears of the past and the desire of the present to move past them.

Also, you’ll definitely want to check out my remarkably astute answer to his question, “How have you found your progression as a writer thus far?”

Haven’t ordered a copy of In the Shadow of the Axe yet? There’s no time like the present!
